University of Maryland Extension



We have gathered some activities for families that can be done at home when you want to unplug from the fast paced world. The goal is to collect materials that can be done with little to no technology. We know that there are many options out there for engaging with 4-H. This list has been compiled to give families choices for 4-H programming.  We want you to feel free to PRINT what you like and GO do it! 


Have fun!
